One Way

I came across this video clip of Oprah the other day and I wanted to post it for those that haven't seen it. I can't help but feel that it is an insult to Christian missionaries all over the world. If you listen to what she says, she seems to be saying that there is no need for anyone to hear about Jesus because there are many ways to get to heaven. Missionaries, like most Christians, have made the mistake of believing that the world needs to hear about Jesus, according to Oprah's thinking. This clip is not only wrong and insulting, but undermines efforts of Christian evangelism since it is translated and broadcast around the world, including here in Ukraine.

Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have command you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." - Matthew 28:18-20

These are children in an orphanage that had not heard about Jesus.

Hearing about Jesus mattered to them!

I'm just amazed that society tolerates such an incredibly influential person like Oprah who denies Christ. That's exactly what she has done with some of her Web class programs geared toward "seekers and students" as she calls them. Oprah not only insults the name of Jesus with her teachings and programs, but she also denies the Biblical truth of what He accomplished on the cross.

Here's a quote from John the Apostle:

"Who is the Liar? It is the man who denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a man is the antichrist - he denies the Father and the Son." - 1 John 2:22

Here's another video clip that shows exactly what Oprah thinks about God and Jesus. I think it's pretty disturbing knowing how many people watch and follow Oprah.

Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. - Philippians 2:9-11
